Customer Question

i HAVE A 2011 Town & Country Limited. I replaced all 4 brake rotors and pads, and replaced the return springs on the rear calipers for the e-brake cable. After blleding the calipers, I have great pedal, but the van creeps with the e-brake applied fully (At the stop on the caliper). How do I get more e-brake? so I can pass inspection?

How many miles on the van ?

The system is self adjusting , i sent you the operation of the parking system on this van.

have you checked the cables for slack or stretching and visually inspect the cables along the frame ?

Have you tried the Parking Brake Automatic Adjuster Tension Reset ? I have sent you a link to the procedures if you have not already .

are the calipers closing all the way ?

72,500 MILES - not sure if the rear caliper is doing anything - cable seems fine - it moves freely, and pulls the arm on the caliper all the way to the stop - I don't beleive the cable is the problem - this sounds like it's a "friction clutch" detection of wear to make the arm adjust to pad wear . . .
Chrysler Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems replied 1 year ago

I agree based on what you replaced so far and what the system is made up from components that does leaves the friction clutch if all the above are good and functioning.

What's the procedure for making the friction clutch engage? (A la the back up & apply the brakes on star wheel drums) - I tried that , applying the e-brake, no response. drive further? apply & go forward/
Chrysler Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems replied 1 year ago

i m not aware of a specific procedure other than what you did already . i would take it apart and physically look at it .

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
